Jeeves in the potager
Because that's what I've been doing lately and am still at it as a matter of fact.
There was much picking of the strawberries,
that are growing over an arch in my potager.
Also doing the arch thingy is my Japanese wine berry but those berries are not ready for picking yet. But picking there will be, and much of it.
And I'm not the only one who's been doing the picking, the birds in my garden are getting their fair share of rich pickings. I've finished picking my white currants but left enough for the birds to enjoy.
And as usual, the birds have been picking the fruits of my Amelanchier lamarkii, a tree that is called currant tree in my country, for obvious reasons. I had hoped to do some picking of my own but it was not to be as there are hardly any fruits left.
But not to worry as there are mucho rich pickings elsewhere like gooseberries, lots and lots of gooseberries in red
Yesterday I filled this basket with ripe gooseberries and there is plenty left to partake of some more rich pickings later on.
There was also much picking and eating (did I mention eating?) and enjoying, very much enjoying of the broad beans, especially when sprinkled with savory, a herb that also grows in my potager.
And as it is a potager, there are lots of flowers to be picked as well. And I have.With Blissful abandon.
Gratuitous picks of my pretty potager
A sneak preview of my new border that also provides rich pickings of flowers.
Very rich pickings. The only picking I haven't done is that of the nit. ;-)
